Throat infection in babies

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection in babies


215220 tn?1191456864 This is like the umpteenth infection I have had. First it was bladder infection, then I got a cold, then had an eye infection. After that I got strep throat. Took antibiotics for 2 weeks and 2 weeks of steroids. Now I have thrush. WTH. Why so many infections? Also can an adult get thrush? I thought that was only for babies.
Avatar n tn strep throat and herpes have nothing to do with each other. strep throat is a bacterial infection, herpes is a viral infection. 1 out of every 2-3 adults has hsv1 orally whether they get obvious cold sores or not to know it. About 1/3 of us contract hsv1 orally before we ever set foot into public school. It's THAT common. Your grandchild could've contracted hsv1 orally from any adult who takes care of her or even from sharing toys, pacifiers etc with other children she's around.
676912 tn?1332812551 The dr I took Elijah to last weeks said babies don't get sore throats, and she said babies don't really get sick. WELL Aubryana (DD 8weeks)has a fever today and has been coughing. Elijah (DS2) had an ear infection and a cold(?) I guess, I'm taking him back to the dr again tomorrow to see what's going on with his ear infection, and about the cough since he's had it a week and has a history of severe bronchitis. SO is my baby girl getting sick, or what?
Avatar f tn As he was walking out the door he says he is calling in a script for an antibiotic for ear infection. In my confusion and crying child in arm I should have said stop and take time to thoroughly check my child but did not. He has been on antibiotic for three days now and is still crying and holding his throat. He is also getting his lower molers in. Fever was 103.4 and can not sleep due to pain every time he swallows. Fever is down but still not sleeping for more than an hour at a time.
Avatar f tn Do you believe there is anyway that I could have acquired Clamydia through the incident that I described to you in my previous post here. I am scared that I may have a clamydia related eye infection. Do u think its possible from sucking on balls and licking feet like I previously described?? Please help.
Avatar f tn I am really worried about my neice who is 10 months and has developed a urinary tract infection and is now in hospital. The staff have told us Lydia has a Klebsiella Bacterial Infection. It sounds like this bacteria is very antiobiotic resisstant. She has been poorly now for over a week and is not improving. Is there any particular successful treatment? She has developed a real mucusy cough and is being tube fed now!!!!!!
Avatar f tn What a horrible experience for you, as a mom, and your son. Is your son on antibiotics? The reason I ask this question is that sometimes when people take antibiotics they can develop "thrush", white coating, and also sores on the tongue. My teenage son had this happen to him recently which I thought only happened when they were babies. It's like a yeast infection of some sort. I may be way off on this but I hope it helps give you something to ponder on.
Avatar n tn A week ago he had a throat culture taken and he has just been diagnosed with Staph Infection in the throat. In spite of being given a general antibiotic, his fever and sore throat has continued. I am concerned that this comes on top of a bad bout of hives (3 weeks ago)that covered his body. The hives seemed to go away after a few days of taking an antihistimine. Questions: 1. Could the hives be related to the staph infection? 2.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, I have a quick question. All those times that I got sick I wanted it to last for weeks just so I would miss school or work and now that I need to get better it seems to be lasting ages. I got my first sore throat monday evening, and tuesday morning I went doctors and got diagnosed with upper respiratory infection and prescribed me with medicines. Symptoms included runny and blocked nose, fatigue, cough and sore throat.
Avatar m tn As per my previous post I had a throat infection and couple of skin infections for which my doc prescribed week course of erythromycin, seemed to clear the throat but then within days it was back 10 times worse accompanied by singular swollen pea sized node under left armpit and neck felt glandy, doctor has put me on another week course of erythromycin, 2 days in my throat still hurts like hell and myblegs fell like ive ran a marathon, also keep getting pains in armpits and left breast area (s
Avatar m tn On Monday, I recorded a fever of around 100-101 and the swelling in my throat had gotten to the point where my tonsils were completely covered by exudate. Swallowing was painful and difficult. Started to experience a bit of fatigue/aching. Later in the afternoon I noticed a rash forming in my upper groin area, and at that point I decided I should probably return to an office for reevaluation.
Avatar n tn Also, I had a an open cut at the side of my mouth at the time of the screen and since the doc and me put our hands down my throat I have had an infection of 2 spot like things at the corner of my mouth, that are circle in shape, that go away when I have used antibiotic and eumovate creme but then come back a couple of days later. I am scared that these are chancers.
Avatar n tn why stucking of food in throat and causing vomting in night times is it due to smoking
Avatar m tn I just read an old post from DR HHH he said oral std very hard to get and gonorrhea will clear itself up in throat but rally hard to get. I think I got a run of the mill virus or allergies. Thanks for your interest.
Avatar m tn I'm a 24 year old male. For about the last year ive had a bit of a mystery going on with my throat, i started to notice my lymph nodes acting up, i could feel them, also my uvula was poking my tongue..VERY annoying and something ive dealt with on and off for a year, i had blood tests done, cultures ultra sounds of the nodes, nothing irregular found. Its been going on for so long its affecting my quality of life...
Avatar m tn Hi, the bumps could be due to a persisting throat infection or irritation. It could most probably be tonsillitis and a throat infection. Throat pain, difficulty swallowing, fever, scratchiness in the throat, post nasal drip, malaise and loss of appetite are symptoms of tonsillitis. Your symptoms could also be due to a post nasal drip, which can cause a chronic irritation in the throat. This could be due to a sinus infection, a cold or a chronic allergy.
Avatar f tn And this last time he was standing up and almost passed out, fell over twice before going into see a doctor, again its a throat infection, really bad. we hadnt put 2 and 2 together until recently, but maybe that fact that he was giving me oral is making him sick... is this possible? what could be the possible cuases? can having sex first maybe be cuaseing this? is there something we r doing wrong.. or? im not sure what to ask or how to get information on this.
